in new hampshire, pennsylvania, virginia and florida. and here's the way to look at it. if, say, at 7:00, virginia is too close to call, that's not good news for romney. you have the feeling as if romney is going to overperform the national number by a point or two in virginia. if that's a too-close-to-call state, and we haven't called it by 9:00, i think the folks will be worried. let's do it again. let's look at pennsylvania. if at 8:00, by 9:00 we haven't called pennsylvania, then suddenly the folks in chicago better be nervous because this is a state that hadn't been on the battleground. it's closed a little bit, but the assumption has been there's sort of a built-in vote there thanks to philadelphia. so if we haven't called that, that's a problem. now what about quick calls. let's say if we call florida and virginia fairly quickly. which means we are confident romney is going to win by two or three points. then that tells us this could be, and we have not yet called, fripgs, ohio, and that's too close to call.
